• Background Information. 252
Luís Martín Serran's wife was was Catalina de Salazar, who was a widow by 1663. At this time we learn that Luís had been the Alcalde Mayor and Captain of the Tewa jurisdiction. Catalina was very likely the daughter of Sebastián Rodrígues de Salazar. Luís's descendants can be distinguished from those of his brother Hernán because they sometimes appended her Salazar name to that of their father. Luis Martín Serran II was, in all likelihood, their son, as was Pedro Martín Serrano de Salazar.

• Background Information. 1465
Catalina de Salazar, Nov 1661, identified herself as "widow, who is the wife of Capitán Luis Martín," when she sought paymen t for grains purchased by Governor López de Mendizábal from her husband [AGN, Tierras, 3268, ff.143-144]. Although there are no primary documents that call Catalina de Salazar the daughter of Sebastían Rodríguez de Salazar [ONMF, 72], the fact that the children of Luis II Martín Serrano and Pedro Martín Serrano were named Sebastián and Sebastiana is an indication of a possible familial relationship between Cataina de Salazar and Sebastián Rodríguez Salazar.
